The EduHound Newsletter also highlights the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP).  Their Web site  (http://ngcproject.org/index.cfm) is designed to reach and bring together STEM organizations which serve girls.  These organizations, across the US and Puerto Rico, are committed to informing and encouraging girls to pursue careers in STEM. 

It provides a database that lists organizations and programs so they can  network and share program descriptions; it lists resources available within each program, program needs, and contact information.
